And the answer is....

Without going into too much detail, I had an opportunity that I really wanted to happen and, well, I didn't get it. 
 Everything is going to be OK. by cosmosingapore #Photography #Quotation
I was confident that it was a done deal, thought positively, visualized myself in the situation, prepared for the changes ahead, and then sat back and waited for it to happen.
 this is true
And then, it didn’t.

An email at 9pm on Sunday night confirmed that.

I got served a big slice of rejection.

And the reason, well the reason doesn’t really matter. Because, at the end of the day, you either get something or you don’t, and this time I didn’t. 


It clearly wasn’t meant to be and so I need to take my bruised ego and unopened bottle of celebratory champagne, swig them both down, move on, and move forward.

Shit happens and you don’t always get what you want, and this time it was my turn to be told no

It always ends up the way it should be.


  1. Sorry to hear that. I always get myself worked up, thinking I have jobs that I've applied for in the bag, just to receive a rejection letter. But then later, I realize that it does all happen for a reason!

  2. Sorry to hear whatever's got you down! I always get worked up about stuff. I make up scenarios in my head and I convince myself of stuff that will probably never happen but still think it will and 9/10 it doesn't work out. Deep down you know it didn't happen for whatever reason because something better will come along. Hard to see it now I know! Hang in there friend!

  3. Aw I'm sorry Tess. That's the worst, but trust it was meant to be. In the end, it will work out and what's meant to be will happen!

  4. Stupid, stupid rejection. It makes staying at my dead-end job waaaay too easy. Damnit.

  5. Sorry to hear the news. :( Rejection is never fun, but there must be something better planned for you!

  6. I'm sorry to hear this. Rejection sucks. No nice way to put it. Ugh! BUT your time will come, I promise. :)

    Big hugs and will be thinking of you.

  7. Sorry to hear about your hard time love! Keep your head up and know everything happens for a reason (so much easier said then done, I know!) Pamper yourself a little this week and treat yourself to a little something special, you deserve it!

  8. Rejection always sucks, but it sounds like you're going to be just fine. And I totally believe in allowing yourself a few moments of wallowing. ;)
